The criteria under special knowledge and experience on the job profile which is shown in this advert, outlines what level of fluency you will be expected to demonstrate.  Therefore, it is essential that you provide examples in your application.

Bradford and its extensive district is an award winning, cultural destination and one of the youngest, most vibrant places in the country. Combine a UNESCO City of Film and Salts Mill World Heritage Site with wild and beautiful moorland, throw in world class artists such as David Hockney, and literary greats such as the Brontës, coupled with a city packed with a rich and varied mix of cultures and heritages, and you have Bradford!
